Q: I'm struggling with a good solution for the awkward entry in our living room. We do need shoe, coat, umbrella and hat/gloves storage as well as a place for our mail, keys, wallets, my purse, etc. No shelves will fit behind the door without blocking the stairs. The house is colonial but our taste is more modern-mid-century modern-industrial-urban decay-a little eclectic (if that makes any sense). Open to anything other than an addition!
